We Can All Breathe A Little
That damned "no smoking" law passed! Then again, it may not be such a bad "damned" law after all-it could be a good thing, especially for our health, who knows? I didn't believe it was for real until the first Friday after New Year's. I decided to go to Circus (the big Latino club in Los Angeles) and simply have some fun. Because I don't smoke, I had completely forgotten about the new no smoking law that had gone into effect everywhere in LA. But the second I stepped into the club, I realized that there was something different about the atmosphere-there was no smell of tobacco. A few people were smoking, but no one made a big deal about it. Regardless, it did feel easier to breathe. It was odd, different, and not necessarily bad-at least until we strolled through the club.
If you have been to Circus, you know that it has four different sections, Tijuana (Spanish music), the '80s room (upstairs), house (main room) and baby Catch One (the hip hop section). As I strolled through the house section, I realized the so-called benefits of cigarette smoking and the biggest reason why it helped the clubs. Somebody (and I plead the 5th when it comes to any names, but actually, I didn't know the person, anyway) really stunk-I mean sovacos (arm pits) from hell. You'd figure if you were going to a club and you knew you were going to dance, that you'd be "SURE" about yourself. I almost felt like telling that person that they reeked, but I wasn't in the mood to get my ass kicked!
Sure, the new smoking ban in the clubs may have allowed us to avoid second-hand smoke, but now we have the problem of first-hand sovacos. So you figure, if people are going to go to the club without wearing deodorant, I sure as hell won't be breathing any easier.
Hey, just had a thought! If you're interested in making some money $$$$ on this new law, you could cash in by starting a deodorant dispenser business in clubs-in the restrooms!
